Honiton Library is a friendly library placed in the centre of the community. There is a welcoming foyer area with seating and a separate Reference library with public computers and tables at which you can work or sit and relax with a book or the newspaper.

The library houses a wide selection of books and audiobooks that can be issued using the self-service machines. You can also request an item from another library for a small charge if you can’t find what you’re looking for. We have a Local History section in the reference library if you want to learn more about the local area. In the bright and colourful children’s library we run regular Bounce & Rhyme sessions on Wednesdays during term time. For adults there is a weekly Keep Calm and Colour In group on Tuesdays, 1-3pm and Keep Calm and Yarn held weekly on Fridays, 3.30 - 5.30pm.  A Games club will be starting on 30th March, every Wednesday in term time, 2-4pm.
